- MUDDYING THE WATERS OF UFO INFORMATION DEPARTMENT -

Masters of Disinformation

The history of ufology is filled with unsavory people, hoaxes and broken promises.  UFO researchers have suspected that government and military agencies have been responsible over the years for covering up information concerning UFOs.  It is believed that these clandestine groups have also been involved in producing spurious UFO reports and information, using investigators and UFO groups to unwittingly spread their disinformation.

The topic of UFOs has always been a problem of public policy. The official positions have been simply to deny the observations.   But the issue of UFOs refuses to go away.  The concept of unidentified flying objects has ingratiated itself into the collective consciousness of mankind to such an extent, that it has proved impossible to remove- despite the attempts to debunk and ridicule the research and belief of UFOs.  However, there does seem to be a group or groups of people that for whatever reason, want to foster a belief in extraterrestrial UFOs.                     
Many UFO researchers over the years have fallen prey to these agents of disinformation, some with full knowledge that they are being played the fool.  When a group or individual is targeted, they will receive a visit from "a source." The source will provide amazing new information.   The source will be very convincing and have all the answers. Of course it will be difficult to verify certain aspects of the new information, but much will be verifiable, or at least seem possible.           

Unfortunately, the source is in reality a disinformation agent. The information provided will be a collection of truth and fiction, combined in such a way as to make separation impossible. This will not be found out until much later, if at all.  At that point the waters have been so muddied that any real information has been lost.

Looking back into the past, the pattern becomes obvious. The MJ-12, Aquarius Papers and the alleged Alien Autopsy film  are fine examples of UFO disinformation. World attention had been focused on the Roswell incident of 1947 and all sorts of spurious information seemed to appear out of the blue to muddy up the waters.

Good evidence dug up by researchers such as Kevin D. Randle had shown that something did occur over the desert of New Mexico on those first days of July.  The national media had started taking notice with stories of their own.  The Air Force tried to stop further investigations by admitting they had lied about the weather balloon story.  Instead, they claimed that Air force personnel had found a top-secret project Mogul balloon, used to spy on possible Soviet atomic tests.  But if the Air Force lied once, who could trust them to tell the truth with their new story?

Shortly thereafter the Alien Autopsy video surfaced.   Said to be the dissection of an alien body found at the Roswell UFO crash, the video was soon called a hoax by most UFO researchers.  But by then the damage was done because of its association to the Roswell incident. Public attention had been diverted away from the government's involvement, as well as the revelation that hundreds of Air force documents from the Roswell air base had been illegally destroyed. A leap of faith occurred with the perception that if the Roswell Alien Autopsy video was a hoax then so must be the entire story of the Roswell incident.
                                                   
This is not to say that the Roswell incident was definitely the crash of an alien spacecraft, any real proof is still forthcoming. But as was stated before, evidence does point to some actual event that was covered up in 1947. What has been shown though, is that the "aliens are here" story is an effective tool used time and again by unknown special interests.   

For whatever reasons, agents of disinformation for some time have been spreading their lies throughout the UFO field.  Far beyond being a mere annoyance, the spread of disinformation in ufology has so escalated in the past several years that few if any can avoid being duped.

Because of this, UFO researchers must educate themselves on the manner in which misleading propaganda and disinformation are purveyed. Questionable documents of great variety and scope continue to surface pertaining to UFOs. Among them are genuine UFO oriented documents that have been retrieved through the use of the Freedom of Information act. Other documents, even of dubious origins are backed up by the attentions received from credible papers. The mixture of the real and unreal dilutes whatever impact credible documentation might have.

The Ridicule factor is reinforced by the proliferation of stories about evil aliens in underground Government bases.  While not believed at first, these stories are soon spread to such an extent that few have not heard the improbable stories.

In any disinformation operation, the strongest channels of information are carefully monitored to obtain feedback on how well the operation is working. Any serious information gathering is stymied by flooding the channels with nonsense.

A UFO researcher can be attracted into a web of actual intelligence operatives by their promises of disclosing secret UFO information. The operatives than entrap the researcher in a situation which embarrasses and discredits him.

The old adage "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is " holds very well to the mountains of information dealing with the UFO phenomenon. With the Internet, and almost instant communication, the problem of disinformation will only continue to spread.    

As a whole new generation of investigators unfamiliar with their older colleagues past mistakes, allow themselves to be sucked into the dark waters of propaganda and counterintelligence.  Further damaging a subject that can ill afford continued strikes against it's integrity and credibility. Trust what can be verified, and doubt what can't be.

- IN SEARCH OF THE SMOKEY GOD DEPARTMENT -

Trip Proposed to Center of Earth Via Polar Opening

A U.S. scientist and a small band of believers are planning a journey to the Canadian Arctic for what they call "the greatest geological expedition in history."

Are they searching for Arctic oil reserves? Documenting evidence of climate change?

Not quite. They're looking for a fog-shrouded hole in the Arctic Ocean that leads -- they say -- to the centre of the Earth, where an unknown civilization is lurking inside the hollow core of the planet.

This time next year, Kentucky based physicist and futurist Brooks Agnew hopes to board the commercially owned Russian icebreaker Yamal in the port of Murmansk, and to sail into the polar sea just beyond Canada's Arctic islands.

"Everest has been climbed a hundred times," Mr. Agnew says. "The Titanic has been scanned from stem to stern. [But] this is the first and only expedition to the North Pole opening ever attempted."

Mr. Agnew is the latest in a long line of people to peddle the nutty, yet persistent, theory that humans live on the surface of a hollow planet, in which two undiscovered openings, near the North and South poles, connect the outer Earth with an interior realm.

In the 17th century, English astronomer and mathematician Sir Edmond Halley, who calculated the orbit of Halley's Comet, advanced hollow-Earth theories, as did German scientist Athanasius Kircher.

More recently the myth has experienced a slight revival, thanks in part to a 2006 book, by American author David Standish, titled Hollow Earth: The long and curious history of imagining strange lands, fantastical creatures, advanced civilizations, and marvellous machines below the Earth's surface.

A year before the book was published, a Utah adventure guide named Steve Currey also tried to cash in on the hollow- Earth legend, by organizing an expedition to locate the North polar opening.

Mr. Currey made a living organizing rafting trips to the world's wildest rivers. He knew how to hype exotic destinations and recruit would-be explorers on trips of a lifetime.

It's not clear whether Mr. Currey was a true hollow-Earth believer, or if he could simply see a good business opportunity. Whatever his beliefs, Mr. Currey somehow pinpointed the Arctic portal at 84.4 degrees north and 41 degrees east, roughly 400 kilometres northwest of Ellesmere Island.

The North Pole inner Earth expedition was scheduled for the summer of 2006, with spaces offered to anyone with US$20,000 to spare.

"There are no guarantees that this expedition will reach inner Earth," Mr. Currey cautioned on his Web site.

"The expedition will make a good-faith effort to locate the North Polar opening and enter therein, but worst-case scenario is that we visit the geographic North Pole, explore the region, and continue on..."

When Mr. Currey died suddenly of brain cancer last summer, Mr. Agnew stepped in to take his place. The trip was postponed to 2008.

While he insists the journey has a genuine scientific purpose, Mr. Agnew also says the expedition will include several experts in meditation, mythology and UFOs, as well as a team of documentary filmmakers.

Randy Freeman, a Yellowknife writer commenting in the current issue of Up Here magazine, warns that "besides heaps of throwaway cash, prospective cruisers should bring along enough gullibility to swallow an outlandish theory that, despite centuries of scorn, refuses to die."

But Mr. Agnew is unfazed by such criticism, promising a grand polar adventure, no matter what the outcome. If the polar opening isn't there, the voyage "will still make an outstanding documentary," he promises.

"But if we do find something, this will be the greatest geological discovery in the history of the world."

- MUSIC OF THE SPHERES DEPARTMENT -

Rosslyn Chapel Echoes to Sound of Saturn

As if there were not enough mysteries involving the medieval chapel that featured in The Da Vinci Code, the plot has thickened further.
    
Rosslyn Chapel has, at one time or another, been suggested as the resting place of the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant and even the mummified head of Christ.

Now cosmology has been added to this rich brew after the ornate symbols on its walls were likened to giant cloud formations photographed on Saturn.

The link was made by Stuart Mitchell, 41, a composer, who with his father Thomas, 75, a former RAF codebreaker, deciphered a musical score they believe was hidden in the 13 angel musicians and 213 cube-like shapes carved on the chapel arches.

After 27 years of research they cracked their code and, at the weekend, they staged the first public performance of the medieval music they found hidden in the carvings.

The piece, known as the Rosslyn Motet, is based on the deciphering of cube and hexagon-shaped symbols using an ancient musical system called cymatics, in which patterns are formed by sound waves at specific pitches.

The shapes appear when a note is used to vibrate a sheet of metal, or a sheet of glass covered in powder. Different frequencies produce patterns such as flowers, diamonds and hexagons. The hexagon features prominently in the chapel carvings.

Mr Mitchell and his father believe the tune was encrypted in the 15th century chapel outside Edinburgh because knowledge of music may have been considered heretical at the time.

Recently, Mr Mitchell was preparing for the first performance when a Mexican astronomer telephoned him and told about the same hexagonal shape on Saturn.

The coincidence suggests a universal significance for the musical score, according to Mr Mitchell, even if the hexagon above Saturn is 15,000 miles across while the carvings are measured in inches.
    
Composer Stuart Mitchell deciphered a musical score they believe was hidden in the cube-like shapes carved on the chapel arches, shapes which mirror a hexagonal formation above Saturn
The mysterious cube symbols on the 15th century walls [left] and the 15,000 mile hexagon photographed above Saturn

In musical terms, both shapes represent a B natural, suggesting to some that the planets may have their own musical score to be cracked.

"The shape matches right down to the detail," said Mr Mitchell. "The shape represents the B natural pattern in our code, and that is the first note of the Rosslyn Motet.

"Now we are starting to see that these symbols that everybody found so magical and unique are around us in a vast way. What we are seeing on our plane of existence we can now also see on a cosmic scale. It is one of the most amazing developments in this story.

"If the geometric figure in Rosslyn Chapel is produced by the same principles as is happening on Saturn - vibration and sound - then Saturn is literally singing a piece of music to us."

Mr Mitchell said that the shape on Saturn was like a humpback whale singing in the darkness of space. He added: "I find it propitious that the sudden interest in the Saturn Hex phenomenon should be at a time when my father and I have realised a composition we believe was 'set in stone' using this same science."

The hexagon above Saturn was detected 26 years ago, but was captured in its complete form for the first time earlier this year by Nasa's Cassini Orbiter. A spokesman at the space agency said at the time that it was a "very strange feature".

Since it featured in The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown, visitor numbers at the chapel have rocketed. Stargazers may now be about to join those throngs of religious conspiracy theorists.

- HIGH OCTANE SEA WATER DEPARTMENT -

Florida Man Invents Machine To Turn Water Into Fire

SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. -- A Florida man may have accidentally invented a machine that could solve the gasoline and energy crisis plaguing the U.S., WPBF News 25 reported.

Sanibel Island resident John Kanzius is a former broadcast executive from Pennsylvania who wondered if his background in physics and radio could come in handy in treating the disease from which he suffers: cancer.

Kanzius, 63, invented a machine that emits radio waves in an attempt to kill cancerous cells while leaving normal cells intact  Here are the basics of John's idea:

Radio-waves will heat certain metals. Tiny bits of certain metal are injected into a cancer patient.  Those nano-particals are attracted to the abnormalities of the cancer cells and ignore the healthy cells.

The patient is then exposed to radio waves and only the bad cells heat up and die.  While testing his machine, he noticed that his invention had other unexpected abilities.

Filling a test tube with salt water from a canal in his back yard, Kanzius placed the tube and a paper towel in the machine and turned it on. Suddenly, the paper towel ignited, lighting up the tube like it was a wax candle.

"Pretty neat, huh?" Kanzius asked WPBF's Jon Shainman.

Kanzius performed the experiment without the paper towel and got the same result -- the saltwater was actually burning.

The former broadcasting executive said he showed the experiment to a handful of scientists across the country who claim they are baffled at watching salt water ignite.

Kanzius said the flame created from his machine reaches a temperature of around 3,000 degrees Farenheit. He said a chemist told him that the immense heat created from the machine breaks down the hydrogen-oxygen bond in the water, igniting the hydrogen.

"You could take plain salt water out of the sea, put it in containers and produce a violent flame that could heat generators that make electricity, or provide other forms of energy," Kanzius said.

He said engineers are currently experimenting with him in Erie, Pa. in an attempt to harness the energy. They've built an engine that, when placed on top of the flame, chugged along for two minutes, Kanzius told WPBF.

Kanzius admits all the excitement surrounding a new possible energy source was a stroke of luck. Someone who witnessed his work on the cancer front asked him if perhaps the machine could be used for desalinization.

"This was an experiment to see if I could heat salt water, and instead of heat, I got fire," Kanzius said.

Kanzius said he hoped that his invention could one day solve a lot of the world's energy problems.

"If I were to be bold enough, I think one day you could power an automobile with this, eventually," Kanzius told WPBF.

- DENIZENS OF DARK DREAMS DEPARTMENT -

The Surprising Realities of Mythical Creatures

While sailing the ocean near Haiti, Christopher Columbus in 1493 reported seeing three mermaids from a distance. The Genoese explorer was not impressed.

Up close, the sea maidens were "not as pretty as they are depicted," he wrote in his journal, "for somehow in the face they look like men."

Many scientists now think that what Columbus probably saw was a manatee, an aquatic mammal that resembles a flippered hippo.

In a new exhibition opening at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) here this weekend, viewers can digitally superimpose the picture of a mermaid atop that of a manatee and see how Columbus and countless other sailors might have been fooled.

Entitled Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids, the exhibition traces the possible origins of some of the world's most famous "imaginary" beasts and also their lesser-known counterparts.

"This museum has a long history of studying and presenting great stories about the natural world and the culture of humanity," said AMNH president Ellen Futter at a press preview of the exhibition earlier this week. "In this exhibition, we extend that tradition further, by looking at the intersection of nature and culture, those moments when people glimpse something fantastical in nature."

The exhibition deftly combines nature and myth, paleontology and anthropology, and delightfully campy models of mythical creatures with real fossils.

Upon first entering the exhibition, visitors are greeted by a 17-foot-long, green, European dragon of the sort that legend says Saint George slew. Its sinuous and colorful Chinese counterpart hangs from the ceiling in one of the last rooms of the exhibition. In the mythical water-creatures section, large tentacles and the head of a giant squid-inspired kraken rise from the floor, its body mostly hidden.

Mythic Creatures borrows specimens and artifacts from the fossil, art and anthropological collections of the AMNH and other museums, and examines how such objects might have-through imagination, misidentification, speculation or outright deception-given birth to fantastical creatures.

"Faced with awesome nature, our imaginations might create something to be revered, something beautiful, something to be gently feared or something simply whimsical and playful, perhaps even magical," Futter said. "I trust that this exhibition will show you a little of all of these."

Visitors can touch a real narwhal tusk, which for centuries many Europeans accepted as proof of the unicorn's existence. Or glimpse the beaked skull of a protoceratop dinosaur, one of the fossil animals that practically litter the Gobi Desert even today, and which traders long ago might have mistaken for the remains of a griffin-a mythical creature with the head and forelimbs of an eagle and the body of a lion.

The exhibition makes a convincing argument for why the same creatures pop up in the stories of cultures separated by great spans of time and distance. Mermaids, for example, were probably born in the minds of lonely European sailors, and as their boats touched shore around the world, the image of the half-woman, half-fish creature spread, often becoming intermixed with local beliefs.

"This is a really intriguing form-the idea of a beautiful woman who also lives in the water," Laurel Kendall, one of the museum's anthropology curators, told LiveScience. "People who have water goddesses, it seems when they encounter the image of the mermaid, [they find] this is a great way to represent them."

Mythic Creatures introduces visitors to imaginary beasts most of us have probably never heard of. There is the Japanese "Kappa," a green monkey-faced creature that had an appetite for children and cucumbers. Kappas lived in ponds but occasionally walked on land. They had bowl-shaped indentations on their heads, where they kept a shallow pool of pond water that was the source of their power. Travelers encountering a Kappa late at night were advised to bow; when the Kappa bowed in turn, it would spill its water and, powerless, scurry back to its pond.

The exhibition is also a rich source of mythical creatures' trivia. Visitors can learn, for example, that, according to Marco Polo, Genghis Khan possessed the feather of a Roc-a mythical giant bird said to dine on elephants-but that Polo's translator, Sir Henry Yule, suspected the feather was only a palm-tree frond.

And, according to the exhibition, not everyone agreed with Columbus about mermaids. Captain John Smith of Pocahontas fame reported that a mermaid he once glimpsed was "by no means unattractive."

Whether homely or beautiful, the monsters and beasts that once haunted the collective imaginations of our ancestors are given new life in Mythic Creatures.

The exhibition will run from May 26, 2007, to January 6, 2008.

Remains of European Man Found in Ancient Chinese Tomb

Human remains found in a 1,400-year-old Chinese tomb belonged to a man of European origin, DNA evidence shows.

Chinese scientists who analyzed the DNA of the remains say the man, named Yu Hong, belonged to one of the oldest genetic groups from western Eurasia.

The tomb, in Taiyuan in central China, marks the easternmost spot where the ancient European lineage has been found.

"The [genetic group] to which Yu Hong belongs is the first west Eurasian special lineage that has been found in the central part of ancient China," said Zhou Hui, head of the DNA laboratory of the College of Life Science at Jilin University in Changchun, China.

Hui led the research, which will be published in the July 7 issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

The tomb containing Yu Hong's remains has been undergoing excavation since 1999. It also contains the remains of a woman of East Asian descent. The burial style and multicolor reliefs found in the tomb are characteristic of Central Asia at the time, experts say.

The people pictured in the reliefs, however, have European traits, such as straight noses and deep-set eyes.

"The mixture of different cultures made it difficult to confirm the origin of this couple, and the anthropologists also could not determine the race of these remains, owing to the partial missing skulls," Hui said.

To learn more about the history of the couple, Hui's team studied their mitochondrial DNA, a type of DNA inherited exclusively from the mother that can be analyzed to track human evolution.

The research shows that Yu Hong arrived in Taiyuan approximately 1,400 years ago and most probably married a local woman.

Carvings found in the tomb depict scenes from his life, showing him to have been a chieftain of the Central Asian people who had settled in China during the Sui dynasty (A.D. 580 to 618).

The carvings suggest that his grandfather and father lived in northwest China's Xinjiang region and were nobles of the Yu country for which he is named.

Yu Hong died in A.D. 592, at the age of 59. His wife, who died in A.D. 598, was buried in the same grave.

Scientists are using DNA to reconstruct ancient population movements in Asia and to determine when Europeans arrived there.

"The existence of European lineages in China was already known to us, but these lineages are mainly concentrated in Xinjiang province," Hui said.

"In the central part of China, west-Eurasian lineages are seldom found in modern populations and have never been found in an ancient individual."

Austin Hughes is an expert in molecular evolution at the University of South Carolina.

The discovery in China, he said, "shows that there has always been gene flow between human populations."

"I think it's possible that these types of genetic studies can give a clearer picture of human movements and human gene flow," Hughes added.

The DNA studies can also shed light on marriage patterns, said Frederika Kaestle of the Indiana Molecular Biology Institute at Indiana University in Bloomington.

"In many cases there are no other methods that allow us to gain access to information on geographic origin or relatedness of individuals in archaeological contexts," Kaestle said.

However, she added, it is impossible to draw conclusions about population movement into the region based on this one DNA sample.

"Was it just this one man [who moved into the area], or was it a large family including this man, or was it an even larger group of people from his ancestral population?" she asked.

Overall, she said, "the study of ancient mitochondrial DNA, as well as other genomic variations, holds great promise for enhancing our understanding of human prehistory."

"This is a nice example of how genetic and archaeological approaches can be combined fruitfully."

- THE BEST RIDES IN THE GALAXY DEPARTMENT -

Roswell Wants to Create a UFO-Themed Amusement Park

City officials in Roswell - the US city famous for a UFO landing myth - want to create a UFO-themed amusement park complete with an indoor roller coaster that would take passengers on a simulated alien abduction.

"Nobody will be harmed and everybody will be returned, hopefully, in the same shape," theme park concept designer Bryan Temmer said yesterday.

Businesses in Roswell have been cashing in on the UFO craze for years. Paintings and replicas of UFOs and space aliens adorn downtown buildings, and even the McDonald's and Wal-Mart discount department store are space-themed.

The proposed park, dubbed Alien Apex Resort, could open as soon as 2010.

The city has received $245,000 government funding for initial planning, but the park would be privately built and managed. Requests for proposals will be advertised next month.

The park will cover 74 acres with room to expand to 148 acres

It will feature other rides and attractions, including an exhibit hall with information on scientific exploration of the universe.

"It's not just about the Roswell incident and did it happen," Temmer said.

The Roswell incident, of course, has brought the south-eastern New Mexico city worldwide acclaim. It centres on a purported UFO crash on a nearby farm in July 1947, which the military later claimed was a top-secret weather balloon.

Temmer, who describes himself as a fan of theme parks and science fiction, pitched the concept to city leaders two years ago.

"I knew there was only one place on the planet, probably in the universe, where this idea would work," he said.

City Planner Zach Montgomery said the project would cost "several hundred millions of dollars". A roller coaster similar to the one Temmer proposed was under construction at another theme park for almost $100 million, he said.

Some business owners believe the theme park is necessary to keep tourists returning.

Sharon Welz is a co-owner of the Roswell Space Centre, a T-shirt and souvenir shop just off Main Street. She said visitors often complained they'd like to see and do more during trips to the town of about 50,000 people.

"We would welcome something like an alien roller coaster or a theme park, absolutely," she said. "How can it hurt us?"

Montgomery agrees, saying the top complaint by tourists during the city's annual UFO festival each summer is that there's not enough to do.

The town's biggest tourism attraction is the International UFO Museum and Research Center, which has drawn 2.5 million visitors since opening in 1992. Beyond that, it's largely boutiques like the one run by Welz.

"We're still in the infancy of our UFO-related economic development," Montgomery said. "Eventually, when people come to Roswell they're not going to have enough time to do everything they want to do. That's our goal."
